God has opened the door for me to pray for and support a native missionary in India. I have felt the power of the Holy Spirit fill me to overflowing from this step of faith. I sat down and figured my budget. After my tithes to my church(Calvary Chapel Knoxville, http://www.calvaryknoxville.org) and paying bills, God has shown me how to cut some expenses so I can be spiritually blessed by supporting the work of Gospel for Asia, http://gfa.org. I ask for you to prayerfully consider the possibilities of partnering with GFA. If you are unable to sponsor a missionary at this time, consider a one-time gift in bibles, tracts, animals for food, radios, blankets, and many other tools needed to support a missionary and his church. You will be blessed. 100% donations received by donors goes directly into to those in need of support. Administrative costs at GFA are amazingly enough supported by those working at GFA. Those working at the offices of GFA raise their own support. You can rest assured all monies donated go directly into the mission field.

Psalm 27:14 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
14 Wait for the LORD;
be courageous and let your heart be strong.
Wait for the LORD.
God has his own timing and sees a lot more in clarity than I. So in order to see the best outcome, wait on the Lord and put on the eternal perspective.

Psalm 24:1-6 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
1 The earth and everything in it, the world and its inhabitants, belong to the LORD; 2 for He laid its foundation on the seas and established it on the rivers. 3 Who may ascend the mountain of the LORD? Who may stand in His holy place? 4 The one who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not set his mind on what is false, and who has not sworn deceitfully. 5 He will receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. 6 Such is the generation of those who seek Him, who seek the face of the God of Jacob.
With the blood sacrifice of our Savior, Jesus, we can stand before our father. Without Jesus, we would be unable to even approach our Heavenly Father. Thank you Jesus for taking our punishment so we can spend eternity with you.

Psalm 19:12-13 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
12 Who perceives his unintentional sins?
Cleanse me from my hidden faults.
13 Moreover, keep Your servant from willful sins;
do not let them rule over me.
Then I will be innocent,
and cleansed from blatant rebellion.

Esther 8:3 (New Living Translation)
3 Then Esther went again before the king, falling down at his feet and begging him with tears to stop the evil plot devised by Haman the Agagite against the Jews.
Just like Esther, thousands of us went before the Lord in unified prayer for our country. Now watch and see what God will do for us as result of us communicated to our King.

Psalm 5:3 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
3 At daybreak, LORD, You hear my voice;
at daybreak I plead my case to You and watch expectantly.
I have found great joy in waking up and talking to Jesus. In order to get the day going on the right foot, people will exercise, drink coffee, eat, read the morning paper, or other daybreak rituals. Yet, there is something which goes on deeper when I start off with prayer and reading God’s Word. Giving God the first part of the day, I gain more than a physical jump start for the rest of the day. Thereis a spiritual aspect of realizing God has gone before me and to prepare me to accomplish His will for my life. Making it through the day can only truly accomplished when I thank Jesus for giving me another day to live for him and share with other about him.

Mark 16:15 (Holman Christian Standard Bible)
15 Then He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to the whole creation.
If you cannot physically go to another country, then I ask you to pray to see how God can use you to bless missionaries in other countries. Gospel for Asia is an Christian organization which trains native missionaries to share the saving power of Jesus Christ to their own people.
Look for ways you can help spread the gospel. You can recycle soda cans, sell you music CD’s, pawn some jewelry, and many other ways. Please pray for God to guide you in supporting missionaries around the world.

Today I will let another political expert have the platform today. This is a very good article. Big tent means anyone is welcome as long as they abide by the rules defined by the Republican platform. Too many have tried to change the platform to appease everyone. This article also works in the Christian faith. All our welcome to come to church, yet must respect what God has established in his Word, the Bible. No matter who you are, you are welcome to enter. Understand however, do not try to change the Bible or the church you attend to conform to your lifestyle, sinful pleasure, etc. God has a reason for what he writes in his Word. Yet, he welcomes you to his table, just don’t try to take over God’s CEO position. While this article link is political in nature, it can also be said of the Christian faith.
